Sam the Girl has Blog

Well, Sam the freshmen girl has a blog. Today's post is about me ranting and raving at her because she reminded me of a girl named Janie that once made a mistake in a big concert-one that was recorded that I listened to for many years. For the record, my rant was a joke! Except that there was a bit of pent-up frustration towards Janie and that slight mistake she made 18 years ago.

I don't know whether to be alarmed or charmed that classy Sam couldn't tell I was joking--for some reason, I like to border on being taken seriously in my humor. At any rate, these words of hers both made me laugh and alarmed me:

But, he launched in this whole story about a rage he had been feeling ever since he knew this girl who did the same thing. Apparently, his anger had been building every time he heard the recording of it, and he displaced his anger onto me. I couldn't tell if he was kidding or not, but good grief.

The longer I look at it, the more hilarious it becomes. Her solution makes sense:
I just won't sing words when it comes to those songs. I'll lip synch.

I hope she chooses another way of dealing with it.

For the record: Sam is a fantastic addition to our choir; I'm proud to have her there. I'm excited about the contributions she makes and the leadership she will give for many years.

Aww Dr. Copeland. I had a bad day yesterday. I knew you were kidding. It just made me feel better to complain about something. Thanks for the compliments and I promise not to lip synch, but I can't vouch for turning red when we sing those particular songs from now on.

My favorite part of rehearsal yesterday was when you freaked out and grabbed your head! I also loved when you almost dropped the "F" bomb. LOL! Its always funny to notice the change from "cool, calm and casual" Copeland to "Freak-out, friggin and foul-language" Copeland around concert time.

No F-bomb from me, Clay. I don't speak that word.

Hey, Im just saying that I read lips very well and I just thought I saw the beginings of a word, thats all!
